ALBANY -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed a bill requiring mandatory acceptance of empty beverage containers through reverse vending machines at large chain retail establishments that sell packaged drinks. Vending machines are exempt from the rules.

The measure, NY S 2877, requires beverage retailers that operate 10 or more stores in the state with 40,000 to 60,000 square feet devoted to the display of merchandise for sale to the public to install at least two reverse vending machines at each site.

The requirement does not apply to retailers like vending companies that sell only beverage containers of 20 fl.ozs. or less packaged in quantities fewer than six.
